Minnesota’s state capitol began as a boot-legging town in 1837 after a fur trader turned bootlegger was removed from Fort Snelling five miles south of what is now downtown St Paul. Within 20 years, the Minnesota territory became the 32nd United State in the union. Since then, the city has become a bustling metropolitan, but with nearly two centuries of history, more than a few ghosts and haunts have left their mark. Your tour begins above the mighty Mississippi at the Old Revenue Building, whose modern construction will initially make you wonder how a building so new can already have a ghost in its midst. You will visit the State Capitol, St. Paul's Cathedral, and also make your way past the Fitzgerald Theatre. Your tour finishes at the St Paul Hotel where gangsters, like Leon Gleckman, made their prohibition home bases.
